    Default NVIDIA 340.24 Linux Driver Has G-SYNC Support, FXAA Control

    Phoronix: NVIDIA 340.24 Linux Driver Has G-SYNC Support, FXAA Control

    Succeeding last month's NVIDIA 340.17 Linux driver beta is now the first official release in the 340.xx driver series for Linux / Solaris / BSD. The NVIDIA 340.24 driver was released this morning with new features but is heavier on the fixing side...

    Release 340 is the Latest Long Lived Branch also, replacing Release 331.

    The Linux 340.* legacy driver series is the last to support the G8x, G9x, and GT2xx GPUs, and motherboard chipsets based on them. Support for new Linux kernels and X servers, as well as fixes for critical bugs, will be included in 340.* legacy releases through the end of 2019.

    Default Optimus

    And proper Optimus support, when? The Nvidia card in my system is mostly unused, so I personally couldn't care less about antialiasing.

    probably when wayland/mir are used instead of X.
    I belive it will be easyer in wayland/mir then X

    Wouldn't it make more sense to ditch the intel graphics and only go for nvidia? If you're not stressing the GPU, how much more power does it really use? Even optimus-compatible GPUs downclock, so I feel like the overall wattage won't make that huge of a difference. I could be wrong though - I've never seen test results involving optimus.

    Energy usage is way higher when the Nvidia card is in use than when the Intel one is. There is a reason why Optimus is a good idea in laptops.

    You are probably right, and that is what I also like to think. Dynamic GPU switching doesn't seem easy in an architecture designed 30 years ago.

    Still, it would be nice to see a statement or a roadmap from Nvidia.

    For now steam beta (7 Jul 2014) still working



    But character rendering on saint row the third still present

    Fixed a floating point exception in the OpenGL driver when running "Risk of Rain" under Wine.
    very good at now i see amd improve on wine (on this front need heavy work to improve)

    I think that requires the new OpenGL ABI and vendor independend OpenGL dispatch library which is developed by NVIDIA. Otherwise you can't have Intel's OpenGL implementation and NVIDIAs OpenGL implementation installed side by side.
